World rugby champions South Africa have been short-listed for the World Team of the Year at the Laureus Sports Awards.

The Springboks were named International Rugby Board Team of the Year in 2009 after a series win over the British and Irish Lions, and securing their third Tri Nations title.

It's the second time in three years they've been nominated for the award, after they won in 2008 following their Rugby World Cup triumph in France.
